- Is this part of my investigation?

- Yes. Say this blanket represents all the matter and energy in the universe, okay? You, me, everything. Nothing has been left out, all right? All the particles, everything.

- What's outside this blanket?

- More blankets. That's the point.

- Blanket's everything.

- Exactly. This is everything. Let's just say that this is me, all right? And I'm, what, 60-odd years old and I'm wearing a gray suit. Blah, blah, blah. And let's say over here, this is you.

- Why what?

- Why do I need to learn how to see the blanket thing all the time in the everyday stuff?

- You wouldn't want to miss out on the big picture, would you?
